of knowing people when they are not running. >> in your lifetime, 17 years with capital gang, cnn, 17 years. >> robert novak, migrate colleague and wonderful friend, it was his idea, the show. he was unhappy -- he as the executive producer made two mistakes. one, as far as capital gang was concerned, he agreed to go to one hour. cnn had this very popular show at 7:00 on saturday night -- a great half-hour show. he had a brilliant idea -- bring on a newsmaker, accused of being too cozy or whatever, but bring on a senator, a governor, a cabinet member, and make them part of the discussion. you would say, what do you think of this? be on a first name basis. you really get a sense of these people. some could take it, others would not. they were used to being deferred to. but it was not a one-hour show. when you do a one-hour show you have to go to hamburger helper and expand out -- let's do a longer piece. it was a high energy show for half an hour. cnn was going through all kinds of changes, too. they have nothing to compare with c-span and you, but -- >> we are 50 minutes in and have not gott
there was the ag marketing service administrator -- we changed the grades of swiss cheese. i was a cnn sensation. everybody making fun of me because we were changing the size of the eyes of the cheese, the highest standard. it became of the story of a government run amok. anyhow, it was very important because it helped with the slicing machines and it helped the swiss cheese industry. i am still proud of that one. anyway, these grade standards are things we work in collaboration with the industry. we are always anxious for industries to come up with innovations in the standards that will help oversee. that is a partnership, one of 's, we areschle's p always work a lot. >> i would just add that in order for partnerships to work, there has to be a constructive conversation. unfortunately, all too often, folks will be encouraging conflict instead of collaboration. and so, yesterday i had a great conversation with leaders in the organic world who were basically making the case that organics are different than general commodities. and because they are different, the systems that we have at usda where
is with the university of southern california, formerly from cnn. it was fascinating hearing some of the people talking about that time. they were afraid of the backlash from the right wing because they were going to be seen as abandoning tie 1. nixon saw you had to make a pivot. he was the one who could do it. jimmy carter came later and i cannot see him ever having got away with that. >> if china succeeds and becomes the number 1 country in the world, should we have ourselves to blame? >> i am not sure. i think we should say ourselves to credit. a booming china helps the united states. our economies are so connective and interdependent. we are selling more to china now. one example, i did a story. it was about how general motors was basically bankrupt in 2008. they were saved mostly by china. i talked to the head of china's sales there. same with forward -- ford. general motors said they were not selling cars. they were still in the united states. business in china was booming and continues to boom. china build more cars now, and buys more cars than the united states does. that trend will get bigger

's take target of killing. i said on cnn sunday morning, there was a time -- i knew there were secondary effects was the primary effect was so important because of the degree of danger that existed at the time. now the environment as changed the degree is somewhat different. now those effects might become dominant. yes, i can see a down side for doing things that you believe are effective and legal and appropriate if it denies you the cooperation of others who see it in a different way. i think we're all aware of that. we knew that. in 2006, it was huddle up, the world has changed, what is appropriate going forward with no judgment whatsoever on what went on before. different circumstances, different people. >> not having read the report, i would say that become its released it needs to be fixed if, in fact the interrogation program had no value. they need to take a second look and maybe spend more time and talk to those who were involved in the program. in terms of the ethical question, in writing hard measures, i spent a lot of time talking to people who worked with me. some of my depu

of the consulate by a cnn reporter weeks later. so, for you to testify that our posture did not allow a rapid response, our posture was not there because we didn't take into account the threats to that consulate. and that's why four americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had aircraft and other capabilities as short distance away as that base. so for you to testify before this committee that they were consistent with available threat estimates is simply false. that our military was appropriately responsive, what would have been an inappropriate response? since any forces -- no forces arrived there until well after these murders took place and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. and finally, all of this is the result of the so-called light footprint. after gaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caveps, then help -- help them -- caches, help them secure their borders, but the light footprint we did not provide. so it was almost predictable, almost, maybe not predictable, that

, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te

" and a cnn contributor. after each one speaks we'll take questions from the audience. finally, please form all statements in the form of a question. thanks. >> thank you. it is a pleasure to be here tonight. it is the earlier i've been out of the office. what should a supporter of free markets and enterprise think of immigration? what should a good policy be? i think this answer -- the answer to this question is simple and straight forward. now, legal immigration, whether through a program or permanent migration it should be easier for people throughout the world, especially for workers. i think this conclusion is easy and simple to reach. i think it -- it doesn't matter what basis you approach it from. whether you like free markets because of toldtarian arguments. i think the answer is all the same. now, let's give you a setup. of all the markets in the world that has to do with the flows and goods enservice of the cross borders, labor is the most reing strictive of all of them. the labor market is one of the most important of them. free marketers know that deregulating, allowing more com
qaeda, unquote. one many explained to me over tea in the capital last month. another told cnn after a failed strike, quote, i would not be surprised if 100 tribesmen joined al qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake, unquote. rather than promote the author of a failing strategy, we need a c.i.a. director who will halt the agency's creeping militarization and restore it to what it does best. i would say what it did best at one time. collecting human intelligence. it's an intelligence agency, not a lightweight version of joint special operations command. and until america wins the intelligence war, missiles will continue to hit the wrong targets, kill too many civilians, and drive young men into waiting arms of our enemies. without accurate on the ground intelligence, our policies will fail, george w. bush launched two major ground invasions, and mr. obama has tried several smaller wars, neither strategy has worked. in yemen, which has been the laboratory for mr. obama's shadow wars, aqap has more than tripled in size after three years of drone strikes. when the united states st
back to 1953 with president eisenhower. cnn live starting at 8:00 a.m. eastern on c-span 2. >> what i have discovered is that the absolute worst strategy to achieve happiness in life is to make that your primary goal. iif you make happiness what you're striving for, you will probably not achieve it. if you will end up being narcissistic, self involved, caring about your own pleasures and your own satisfactions and live as your paramount goal. happiness is best as a byproduct of other things. meaningful work and family, friends, good health, love, and care. we get happiness not by aiming directly for it but by throwing ourselves and to the right projects and fundamentally trying to have integrity and be a good person. >> bien "conscious capitalism," john mackey explored how capitalism can be lethal -- can lead to a better world. like us on facebook. outgoing defense secretary leon panetta talks about the automatic spending cuts known as the sequestration. the defense department's priorities and cyber attacks. he spoke to students. this is one hour and 10 minutes.

as to how these things happen. he called cnn. they did a one-hour program, which is just aired a few months ago. they're still broadcasting it. they talked about that. last year 15,000 people died from the misuse of prescription drugs. these are young lives. they did not have to die that way, you know. the program on tv. i got hundreds of e-mails from people. hundreds of families to of lost their children the same way. every day we read something in the paper, in the wall street journal, new york times where they're talking about a prescription painkillers and how they are being used -- abused. a lot of times people did not even know if you take a prescription drug and mix it with alcohol it is legal. so finally i told president clinton that's what we want to do is support the foundation in helping how to prevent future deaths. these floods can easily be saved you know. he was gracious enough to help us in this mission, and that is why i am here. thank you very much.
